Bad Juju

"If you believe your weapon wants to end all existence, then so it will." - Toland the Shattered


Bad Juju is a full-auto, high-ROF Exotic Pulse Rifle acquired from the Toland's Legacy Exotic Bounty. Smart Drift Control and Perfect Balance are popular talent choices, given how quickly Bad Juju fires.

In the December Exotic Patch, Bad Juju received a significant buff:

  • Magazine Size increased to 8 bursts (was 5)
  • Ammo inventory size increased
  • String of Curses now also decreases the cooldown of your Super on kill
  • Adjusted effects to not block first person reticle

The increased Super gain from String of Curses is +3.25%. This makes it an increasingly-popular choice, especially for Voidwalkers with Obsidian Mind equipped.

In Patch 1.1.1, Pulse Rifles will receive a +9.7% damage buff, further increasing Bad Juju's effectiveness.

Lore of Toland and Bad Juju

Bad Juju is a weapon crafted by Toland the Shattered, a Warlock exiled for his extreme fascination with the Hive. Before his exile, he was the owner of the Legendary Auto Rifle Shadow Price.

The story of Toland and Bad Juju is told through several Grimoire cards and items:

Before hunting Crota, Eris and her fireteam found the exiled Toland. They recruited him – the exiled master of Hive arcana – to assist in their mission to kill Crota. While Eris' fireteam was unsuccessful, Toland's fate is unknown.

These are Year One Values, Bad Juju Year Two has had a few  tweaks.
